For the magic prefix, see Sapphire.
Sapphires are gems, and are socketable items. They are blue.
Like all other Gems, Sapphires give bonuses that are related to their color. The Blue in Sapphires signifies the Elemental power of Cold. In Weapons and Shields it adds bonuses related to cold, and in helms and body armor it increases mana, which is also associated with the color blue.
Note: The Freeze durations are cumulative.
- Sapphires are often symbolic of faith, and in Christian tradition its sky blue hue symbolizes status as a stone of the heavens connected to the cherubim. This angelic link is reflected in game, where Sapphires give bonus to magical power, i.e. Mana.
